Queen of the Wind

July 12, 2020

I spent yesterday near Rosebush, MI, in Isabella County, watching this turbine go up.

This is one of the big ones, 588 feet to the tip – so triply awesome and impressive. The engineers took plenty of time in preparation, but then made it look easy when it went up.
Inspiring for those of us that care about our kids.

    What are those thick cables wrapped around the support?

      good question, I see them on the new tower sections, it appears they get removed at. some point but have not observed that process.
      hope to be learning more.
